Samantha Siros, a public administration sophomore, was elected as the 2012-2013 San Diego State ambassador president. Siros is one of the youngest ambassador presidents to be elected.
Siros admires many qualities of current president Rachel Bailey’s leadership on campus. According to Siros, one aspect she would like to continue implementing from Bailey’s presidency is the building of relationships between student organizations and ambassadors.
“I hope to continue getting to know what other students do for this school, so we, as ambassadors, can better represent the school as a whole,” Siros said.
She said the more ambassadors know about organizations on campus, the more opportunities ambassadors can offer to new students interested in attending SDSU.
Besides acting as a liaison between the entire campus community and the ambassadors, Siros has many other responsibilities as president. She will receive all event requests and make sure the ambassadors arrive on location, act professionally and provide the services requested. She is also responsible for all 50-60 general members, whose performance reflects Siros’ leadership.
One of the largest responsibilities Siros has to handle is the new student orientation that takes place every summer. She will be working closely with the Office of New Student and Parent Programs to facilitate the orientation and ensure it runs smoothly.
Siros expressed gratitude toward her current and past ambassador leaders. They have constantly encouraged her to reach her full potential within the organization.
Siros is excited to take on this position. “At the beginning I know it will be a lot to take in and a lot to learn, but it will be a great learning process,” Siros said. At the end-of-the-year ambassador banquet, Siros will take the oath as the new president and on May 5 her responsibilities will fully begin.
